It’s still hard to process the shocking passing of Avicii. Artists and people from all walks of life have started to share their grief via several different social media platforms. You can tell that Avicii was a rock star from the fact he inspired a range of artists from all across the dance music spectrum. It’s not many artists that get respect from deadmau5, Eric Prydz, Hardwell, and everyone in between.
If you aren’t already crushed by the loss, the sincere response from his longtime “nemesis” deadmau5 at the bottom will surely have you crying.
See What Everyone Is Saying Below:
I’m shook. Avicii. RIP.
Sometimes I think only death immortalizes art.

Genuinely heartbroken about Avicii. Not just because I was a huge fan, and massively inspired by his work, or because he was such a genuinely nice person, but he was just 28.
He had a whole life left to make music for the world and all of a sudden it’s over 😔
RIP Tim Bergling

Hey Tim, I never got to meet you, but I wanted you to know that almost 11 years ago the first remix I ever did was of Seek Bromance. I remember watching all your music videos, interviews, etc. completely fascinated by the phenomena that was avicii. Thanks for inspiring us all.

We are extremely saddened by the news of Avicii’s passing. Out of respect for him and his family, we have discontinued the live stream of ‘Armada Invites: KLASH Records’. Thank you for your understanding.

. @Avicii was talented and kind, and I was genuinely excited to see what would come next from him. His future most certainly should have been written beyond age 28. I am
Rest easy Tim.

Such an eye opener for me. I was headed down a path very similar had I not made certain changes in my life. So, actually, thank you a lot Tim for helping me realize this. You’ve impacted my life in many more ways than you know. Thanks man. pic.twitter.com/gt5tZFy841

my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the friends, fans and families of @Avicii 🙁 Banter aside, nobody can deny what he has accomplished and done for modern dance music and im very proud of him.
— Goat lord (@deadmau5) April 20, 2018
I would have enjoyed nothing more than ripping into Avicii well into and beyond our 60’s. taken away from us far too young. I know he’s at peace somewhere up there getting the last laugh that i spelled his name right this time. https://t.co/uAmdPsouSz

We truly cannot fathom the gravity of the situation. His sudden death will impact the music industry for years to come. “Wake Me Up When It’s All Over” will never be interpreted the same way, after today. You will be missed and treasured forever. #RIPAvicii
